Since his move to Nashville, TN, in 2009, producer/songwriter DAVID GARCIA has had a tremendous impact in virtually every facet of Christian music. To date, he has won three Grammy awards, four Dove awards, ASCAP’s Christian Songwriter of the Year, and has written/produced over 15 #1 singles across several radio formats.
As a songwriter, Garcia’s breakout hit was a big one. Mandisa’s “Stronger,” stayed at the #1 slot at AC Radio for an outstanding 15 weeks! Some of his other hits include: TobyMac’s “Me Without You,” MercyMe’s “Greater,” Francesca Battistelli’s “Write Your Story,” and Mandisa’s “Overcomer.” Several of his songs have been used in major films/trailers and various TV shows.
Garcia’s production work on TobyMac’s Eye on It, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart, not only earned a Grammy Award, but also brought in an American Music Award and a Billboard Music Award for Christian Album of the Year. In addition to this, he is one of the few producers who enjoys working and has been recognized for his work in almost every style of music, winning Dove Awards for rock, hip hop, and pop/contemporary albums of the year.
Most recently, Garcia produced several songs for Capitol Records’ breakout rap artist NF, had multiple writer/producer credits on TobyMac’s This Is Not a Test, and is currently in the studio finishing work on Britt Nicole’s new album due out in 2016. On top of all this, Garcia and his wife, Krystal, proudly welcomed the birth of their son, D.C., in 2015.
